Vacation Mini Album

09/27/18

Hello Fancy Pants fans. I have a mini album for you to share, made with awesome “On Our Way” collection. I have been playing with it this month because I have plenty of our travel photos to scrap. I am still in this colorful and joyful mood and I am not in a hurry to move to fall projects. Summer is my favorite season and I am going to stick to it as long as possible.
This time I was inspired by all the planes included into the ephemera pack. We usually travel by car so I do not airport or plane pictures, that would go well with those bits and pieces. What I do have is a bunch of photos taken in Toulouse while we visited Aeroscopia – Museum of Aviation.
1
I used a ready base – 4×4 Insta Album from Fancy Pants. It has page protectors included and basically all you have to do it to slip photos and embellish the cover.
2
I printed few 4*4 inches photos along with few collages of smaller pictures. Some of the pages are made of patterned paper. I used 6*6 paper pad to cut them out.
3
I also love to include tags and ephemera pieces between the pages of my album to add some new shapes and place for journaling. It makes album more interesting and interactive.
4
It took me less than an hour to make this mini album. I tried to keep things simple as I tend to overembellish :) It was fun to go back in time and visit Aeroscopia once again.

“On our way” collection is so fun and versatile and I really enjoyed making all my projects with it. Love the bold colors and fun patterns. If you would like to purchase it, ask in your local stores. You can also visit Make Pretty Life Shop.
Thank you for stopping by.

Colorful Zoo Layout

09/26/18

Hello friends,

Today I have highlight the On Our Way collection with a trip to the zoo.  I feel like maybe this layout is highlight the tags that are part of the collection and the rainbow paper!!  They both worked so well for the banner idea I had in mind for this occasion.

Zooo-Staged

Zoo--left-corner

Zoo-Right-corner

If you like at both of the above photos, you can see that I used the tags as background papers behind my photos.  The different colors and designs help bring depth and character behind each picture.

Zoo-Flair

I added the cloud flair like it is a could floating over our heads!

Zoo---Square

All the colors worked with the colors in my photos.  I love the colors in this nontraditional travel collection.  You can use it for so many different memories.

Thanks for stopping in today.

I have been saving this envelope for a loooong time. It is the perfect size to drop a gift card into it. It just needed a little bit of decorating!

I know a lot of people whose children go on their mission or to college, or studying abroad.  I can see myself giving my children a card like this lol. I’m coming too, my bags are packed hahaha.

My best advice is to never overthink a project, and everything looks better popped up with foam tape.
Have a great day!

Hit the Road!

09/20/18

Good morning Fancy Pants fans! Nicole here today to share a project made with the new On Our Way collection.

Hit the road full

There is just something about the fun mix of patterns in the On Our Way collection that I can’t get enough of! I just love that bold yellow dot pattern, and mixed it with the simple teal grid on a plain white cardstock background. The bold colors blend nicely with the help of some awesome ephemera  to tie it all together.

Hit the road cl1

I added in some buttons from the Happy Place collection that co-ordinate so perfectly with these fun colors! Just love the street sign ephemera, so perfect for documenting some of those summer road trips.

Hit the road cl2

I used the chipboard letters from the Family & Co collection to make a bold title, mixed with the enamel letters in the  On Our Way collection too. Love that mix of fonts together. Can’t get enough of those chipboard letters either!

The Road Less Traveled

09/18/18

Hello crafty friends. It’s Anna here with my newest project created with “On Our Way” collection. I just love those bright colors and fun graphics included in this line. I think it’s my favorite Fancy Pants collection so far. I am a big fan of every summer / travel themed items because I love scrapbooking our family vacations. There are always so many feelings and memories behind those pictures. This time I decided to use photo of a splendid view we had on Monte Capane while we visited Elba Island.
1-2
I wanted the picture to be a main focus of my page so I printed it big. With large photos on layouts you don’t have much space left for embellishing. I used this narrow strip under the picture to add colorful stripes of paper cut of 6*6 paper pad. I decided to use grey paper called “Now bording” as a neutral background.
2-2
We took a car trip around the Elba Island, enjoying views, climbing mountain and taking some beach time. That’s why I picked some retro cars from ephemera pack along with mountain silhouettes as an embellishments. Title came easy by connection big “adventure” with Elba word created with alpha stickers.
3-2
I love how colorful this layout is and how well you can see this wonderful view with sea and mountains on it. Big pictures look so well on pages.
That is all for today. Thank you for stopping by and see you soon.

Tuscany Vacation

09/12/18

Hello crafty friends. It’s Anna here with my second inspiration created with “On Our Way” collection. I am a huge fan of every travel / summer themed collection and this one is no exception. Bold, vivid colors are to fun to work with but the ephemera pack is to die for. I love all those funny inscriptions included into this pack. Just a real life “words”, because travels are not always perfect.
1
I really like stamp set that is included into this collection and I decided to use it to customize my background. You do not need much to make similar one – just a white cardstock and few colorful ink pads.
2
It took me like half an hour to get stamping done. I didn’t want to overload the page and cover the background so I decided to keep it simple. I cut the title using my Silhouette Cameo and 6*6 paper pad. It’s just perfect for cutting smaller elements.
3
My layout is about my favorite place I visited so far – Tuscany. Those lovely hills, with rows of cyprysses leading to traditional villas. Fields filled with grapevines and olive trees makes you want to sit and relax. Trully idyllic place.
4
After adding a title and picture and I picked few pieces from ephemera pack to finish my project. I also added flair button and few buttons from Flair and button mix.
5
Simple and easy. I will also add my journaling on the page but I wanted to keep it private :) I hope you feel inspired by my project and you will also reach for stamps to create your own background.
